Shelton Chow, DDS

Dr. Chow grew up on the West Coast, spending his childhood in San Francisco and then moving down to Nogales, Mexico, at 13. He crossed into the U.S. every day to attend school, and after breaking a tooth during his sophomore year of high school, he ended up spending the next two years in and out of the dentist’s chair. During this time, he developed an appreciation for the importance and value of oral health care. He realized that the precision of dentistry combined with the ability to take care of people and build meaningful relationships was the perfect profession for him.

Dr. Chow received his bachelor’s degree in biology with minors in chemistry and Chinese at the University of Arizona. He then attended the UCLA School of Dentistry where he obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery. He has been practicing for almost 15 years, with extensive experience and expertise in all aspects of general dentistry.

When Dr. Chow isn’t working with patients, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons. They love watching movies and traveling to new destinations together. His hobbies include playing basketball and collecting all things sports-related!
